Airfare deals are typically only available on limited dates. We recommend that you use Google Flights to find dates to fly, then book through an online travel agency, such as Orbitz, which allows you to cancel flights without penalty by 11pm Eastern Time within one day of booking. Remember: Fares may disappear quickly, so book right away and take advantage of Orbitz’s courtesy cancellation if you’re unable to travel.
It’s been about a week since we found a good deal to Mexico, and as luck would have it a new one’s surfaced today. While many flight deals to Mexico are limited to Cancun or Cabo, today’s flights will bring passengers to Puerto Vallarta (PVR) from a bunch of different cities on United.
The cheapest flights we found were for $268 from Dallas (DFW), Philadelphia (PHL) and Phoenix (PHX) to Puerto Vallarta (PVR). There are also cheap flights from Charlotte (CLT), Houston (IAH), Raleigh (RDU), St. Louis (STL) and other cities at a slightly higher price point. All of these flights are available on select days through December. Be sure to check the flight’s duration, as certain routes seem to require overnight stops.
Here are a few examples of what we found:
Dallas (DFW)-Puerto Vallarta (PVR) for $268 on United (earns 2,230 PQMs):
Philadelphia (PHL)-Puerto Vallarta (PVR) for $268 on United (earns 4,430 PQMs):
Phoenix (PHX)-Puerto Vallarta (PVR) for $268 on United (earns 3,823 PQMs):
